Houston Engulfed by Massive Flood In The Wake Of Hurricane Harvey





A massive flood has hit Houston and other parts of Texas in the wake of the Category 4 Hurricane Harvey that swept through South-Eastern Texas.

According to Guardian, as much as 30 inches of rain has fallen in some counties, with at least 2 people dead and property worth billions lost.

Thousands who have been forced from their homes by the flood are walking the streets to safety, camping out in shelters, or waiting atop roofs to be saved by helicopters.

The unprecedented loss is being compared to the one suffered during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, which caused an estimated $108bn worth of losses.

It is feared that the storm will spread to Louisiana, with rainfall amounts of 15-25 inches expected to fall there.

New Song: Apollo Adultreé - Ride (feat. Bucho Dego)


Two Months after releasing His last Ep #Stress Unit, Apollo brings us this mid tempo, Afrocentric, dynamic and unique single titled "Ride". This song is off His debut LP, #Benin, set to be released this month. He sets this summer off with this highly exciting new sound he calls Sonic Reggae. 

A genre encompassing a number of sounds but originally derived from traditional reggae and hip hop/trap. This song features another prominent Nigerian act, Bucho Dego, whose voice and country vibes deserves an article of its own. The chemistry between these two, is artistically astounding. It would be no surprise if this song becomes the biggest song of the summer as  I am certain it’s reception would be amazing.  

However, only you can be the judge of that. For now, just know there is a mystic sound man in town, and his name is Apollo Adultreé.
